Up and coming events!
Reception Immersion Day - Monday the 20th of January - Children will not need anything additional for this day!
'Star of the Week!'
Our school mascot is Bubsy. You will have the
pleasure of meeting Bubsy when he
comes to your house to stay! He will go home with the
'Star of the Week' on a Friday, spend time with their family
and will be brought back on a Monday. Children will share
their weekend news with the rest of the class.
We have now started sending
home reading books, along with Reading Records. We ask that
you make a brief comment the record book each time you
hear your child read. Make reading time a pleasure for you both.
Sharing a book at bedtime allows children to learn
the importance of putting expression into their reading and it is a great time for you to relax! A great emphasis is put upon
reading in Reception so ensure that you read with your child
as often as possible. Read a variety of texts including
magazines, books, comics, poems and information books!
The Phoenix Library offers a range of these and
is a great place to start!
Please can all clothes be labelled with your child's name.
We will collect £1.50 every Monday to cover the cost of
our daily fruit snack and also our weekly cooking sessions.
Diolch yn fawr!
Take a look at some of the work that we have been doing...
Learning all about telling the time!
We have enjoyed playing in our 'Time Station'.
We selected different time cards and practiced displaying them on the mini clocks.
Making animal masks ready for our Immersion Day
We will be wearing these for the day. Our classroom will be transformed into a barn. The teachers are going to be the farmers and we will be the farm animals. We can't wait!
Farm Animal Puppets
Here we are creating our own puppets to take home. We are getting really good now at manipulating tools and resources independently.
Animals and their Young
We completed a 'Bubsy Challenge' where we had to write the names of the animal babies. We used the work bank to help us.
Our Farm Shop is now open!
Here we are having fun in our new Farm Shop....Would you like to buy anything from us?
We enjoy our Story Sessions in Reception. So far this term we have read 'The Little Red Hen' and 'Farmer Duck'. We have been learning all about the features of books. We look forward to Janet Chaplin coming into visit us next month. She will be reading a story related to our current theme 'On the Farm'.
Learning how to play interactive games. We love 'Hairy Letters' and 'Monkey Maths'. We have also been developing our mouse control by learning how to 'drag and drop' objects on screen...
Maths across the Curriculum
We have been singing our favourite number songs to help us
recognise numbers and take away one. We have also been learning
to recognise and write numbers through play.
We have also been matching numbers to the correct number of objects...
This term we are working hard to form our numbers correctly. We have been using a 100 square to practise.
We sing our 'Growth Mindset' song every morning to remind ourselves that we can improve all that we do if we just try!
Nothing is impossible! Miss Guy and Miss Solomon remind us that 'practise makes perfect!'
We listen to 'Try Everything' by Shakira
and 'What I am' by Will.i.am.
Go check them out!
We have been reinforcing letter sounds. We have also been trying hard to read and write our own names! We also had fun learning some tricky words when playing 'football'.
We are learning to hold our pencils using the
tripod grip. We have also been developing our pencil control by
completing different mark making activities...
We hope you have enjoyed exploring our page. Please come back again soon to see lots more of what we have been up to.
